Malicious Compliance: Man Has Boat Painted on Fence Required by City Government

Etienne Constable, a resident of Seaside, California, owns a boat. He parks it in his driveway. This resulting view was apparently unacceptable to the city government, which required him to screen the unsightly boat with a fence.

KSBW-8 News reports that Constable creatively obeyed the edict. He erected the fence and then commissioned artist Hanif Wondir to paint a realistic image of the boat on the fence now blocking the view of the boat. Constable says that the city has yet to respond to his malicious compliance with its rule.

Here's a time-lapse video of Wondir composing the mural.
